Easiest Way to Become A Speaker

July 29, 2015

Dear Cathy:

It’s been my lifelong dream to become a Speaker but I have a fear of speaking.  I wanted to join Toastmasters or the National Speakers Association but I heard you have to get in front of an audience and be criticized for the way you speak.  I don’t think I like that method so do you have any suggestions on how I should proceed?  Trying Hard To Become A Speaker, Georgia

Dear Trying Hard to Become A Speaker:

Speaking is one of the most sought after careers out there right now.  Everyone is doing it and many others would like to do it but they lack confidence and self-esteem -- even though they have great stories that need to be told. 

The Public Speakers Association (PSA) ( that has been around for two years welcome people who are imperfect -- so they will not only welcome you with opened arms but they will work with you to become a better speaker.

The PSA love having fun, nice, imperfect people who want to go out and change lives with their message, products and services.

There are 3 things you need to know about the Public Speakers Association:
-The Public Speakers Association believe in changing the world from in front of the room.
-Unlike other speakers that compete with each other -- they don't -- instead they help each other become better speakers by providing continuous speaker training.
-They are like Toastmasters ( and the National Speakers Association ( but they are looking for people who are IMPERFECT.

It's time to up your game in business.  What you have to remember is that no one is an island and you can't be successful as a solo business owner.  In order to be successful you have to form business alliances, strategic partnerships, co-ops, and joint ventures with other businesses and that is what you will be doing with the Public Speakers Association.  

So if you are imperfect and want to improve your speaking skills, sign up today to become a general or featured speaker with the Public Speakers Association. Of course you will have more perks as a featured speaker.  You can be a part of the leadership team by becoming an Executive Director; Co-Executive Director; or join the Communications or Membership Chair in your city.
